Wet Storm Approaches –

Winter Storm Approach on December 11, 2014 at 11:21 AM (National Weather Service Radar)

As I write this, it is raining from Monterey, CA to Redding, CA.  Rain has moved into the northern Sierra and even sprinkles of rain with strong winds in Reno.  It is 58º F, too, so it is likely to be raining in the mountains rather than snowing.   Has the weather shifted to a wet pattern that will bring significant amounts of rain and snow to benefit the Truckee River?  Has the high pressure that has come to dominate our weather gone bye-bye?  If it comes back again to dominate the weather for the far west and southwest, then what?

About Dennis Ghiglieri

My concern for the Truckee River grew over the years. It started with picking up trash and supporting better water quality. I helped create the "living river"plan with other citizens on the Community Flood Coalition; a plan to reduce flood impacts to infrastructure through river restoration and protection of the floodplain. I understand how critical the Truckee River is to the environment – and economy – of our entire region. I'm hoping that through these pages we can all understand our connection to the Truckee River and why we need to protect it.
